June 29 Devotional

O God, who existed before all things, draw near to my heart today as I draw near to yours. Grant that as we are together during this time - as well as this day - I will know of your presence to the very core of my being. Let me experience the intimacy with you that I was created for. In the name of Jesus, the Word made flesh. Amen....

The story of the Sacred Romance begins not with God alone, the Author at his desk, but with God in relationship, intimacy beyond our wildest imagination, heroic intimacy. The Trinity is at the center of the universe; perfect relationship is the heart of reality. Think of your best moments of love or friendship or creative partnership, the best times with family or friends...

To love is good, too: love being difficult. For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation. ("Letters to a Young Poet" by Rainer Maria Rilke)...

He gives us visual images t...

Transformation and intimacy both cry out for ministry. We are led through the furnace of God’s purity not just for our own sake but also for the sake of others. We are drawn up into the bosom of God’s love not merely to experience acceptance but also so we can give His love to others....

Lord God, asking for more of you seems like such a dangerous request. In fact, if you indeed give us what we are asking for, it will probably wreck our lives as we now know them. But our desire for more of you is also the deepest longing of our hearts. So regardless of the outcome, O Lord, give us more of you than we have right now. Fill us to overflowing with your power a...

Let us give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men. For, in his great passion for us, he will not allow us to settle for less than the beauty and delight he had in mind for us when he dreamt us into being. Amen....

When we submit our lives to what we read in Scripture, we find that we are not being led to see God in our stories but our stories in God’s. God is the larger context and plot in which our stories find themselves. - Eugene Peterson...
